Symptoms of paralysis after wisdom tooth extraction
Q: A woman in her late 20s. I had my right wisdom tooth pulled out by surgery yesterday. But my mouth was turned to the left last night. So I went to the dentist and came back, and my mouth got better. However, since yesterday, the inside of the right cheek seems to be paralyzed and the right cheek seems to be drooping down.
It doesn’t hurt at all and I don’t think I have a good sense. It’s a little swollen at the bottom, but I don’t think it has anything to do with it. I wrote the consent form when I pulled it out yesterday and I couldn’t take it because the machine was broken, but I’m worried that there might be some kind of paralysis. I’m losing strength in my hands and legs, but I’m not sure if paralysis is spreading.
A: Wisdom tooth extraction is the most difficult dental treatment. In the past, dentists with expensive equipment such as CT were rare. It is true that more dentists have expensive equipment for implants these days, but you don’t have to get a CT when you get your wisdom teeth removed.
The diagnosis can only be made with normal intraoral radiographs or panoramic photographs, unless it is necessary for the doctor’s judgment. CT scans are uninsured and may result in unnecessary medical expenses for patients.
The problem is that the anesthesia won’t go away after the wisdom tooth is removed. If this is correct, we recommend that you follow the instructions of the dentist who has been treated, as the nerve damage can generally recover slowly within three months of treatment.
Symptoms such as a twisted mouth or drooping right cheek are related to facial nerve paralysis, not to the nerves connected to the wisdom tooth, and are virtually unrelated to the teeth.
The nerves that dominate wisdom teeth are, in dentistry, Hachizo and Cervical nerves. The nerves that are damaged when you have wisdom teeth are related to Hachizo nerves, so when you have right wisdom teeth, the front teeth of the lower jaw and right lower lip area may feel numb and anesthetized for a long time. Even if the symptoms are not severe, the front teeth of the lower jaw feel a little cold for about a week and then return to normal 비아그라 구입처
The feeling of paralysis and loss of strength in the hands and legs seems to be a bigger psychological factor. Ultra-diagnostic radiographs and patient symptoms are the most important for accurate diagnosis.
